North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon is seeking out-of-state travelers to avoid pushing by North Carolina, as most of a state is trade with rising inundate waters from Florence.
“We could see this for several days,” Trogdon pronounced during a Saturday press conference. “This is what we need to do currently to make certain motorists are protected in North Carolina.”
All lanes of Interstate 95 are sealed in both directions between Exit 81 nearby Raleigh-Durham and Exit 65 nearby Godwin, due to flooding, according to NC DOT.
While a apportionment of Interstate 95 nearby Dunn, North Carolina, is approaching to re-open Sunday, NC DOT anticipates additional closures in a Fayetteville area, nearby a Cape Fear River. Those closures could final a week.
Drivers from adjacent Georgia and Virginia are being asked to use choice routes, NC DOT says.
Detours for by trade have been established. Here’s a hotline for navigation assistance: 1-833-786-7618.
